Ingy... How do you know there's bio balls? The person I'm buying the tank from only said Wet/Dry Pump & protein skimmer, no explanation of the set up which I'm funding out isnt cut & dry how it is set up when i Google that. It's SUCH a great deal for me to get started I'm just not questioning her, I'm taking the tank & running! Ha ha... I know I can figure out what I've got once I get home. Plus I have an IRL fish friend who will help me work out the details but I value any opinion I can get from experienced fish keepers. Can you (or anybody) tell me your (their) thoughts on a refugium over a sump? I've read tons on them but I want to know why people prefer 1 over the other. I'm a very dedicated yet I'd say efficiently frugal fish keeper. I'm not frugal to the point of sacrificing my fish's health but I'm not into it being super fancy, just get the job done & I don't mind doing extra work. I'm also curious why people don't just keep the plants IN their tanks! I have SO MANY questions!! I highly appreciate y'all answering them!!
Rutrag... There's LOTS of Live Rock pretty much enough to make a line the whole length of the tank & fills most of the water column height. Can I supplement the copepods? Like either introduce them to the tank or encourage their growth on the live rock for the Blenny. My LFS
lady recommended him for algae control but I don't want him to starve!!
I've been thinking about starting a SW
tank for 1 year. I've read so much & I've waited for the right opportunity. Summer is a great time for me to spend time on perfecting it. I'm SO EXCITED!!
